At least 49 people including 2 women and 47 men were executed in the period from (23rd August to 19th September 2014) in Iran.
17 people were executed today. The execution of political prisoners in Iran is something normal to the state there. Almost all the political prisoners whom most of them are from Ahwaz region are being charged by ‘Mofsed-e-filarz’, meaning ‘spreading corruption on earth’ and ‘Moharebeh’, meaning ‘enmity against God’! O_O
Execution is a kind of capital punishment in Iran. It is the maximum punishment for the convicted individuals. Section 6 of Article 2 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) states; “In countries which have not abolished the death penalty, sentence of death may be imposed only for the most serious crimes in accordance with the law in force at the time of the commission of the crime and not contrary to the provisions of the present Covenant and to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. This penalty can only be carried out pursuant to a final judgment rendered by a competent court.”
Iran has not signed the Optional Protocol to the ICCPR, which calls for the abolition of the death penalty and despite international warnings regarding executions and stopping the death penalty, and despite the lack of fair trial standards, a large number of criminals and offenders are being executed by hanging them in public and in some cases secretly.
Iran has the second highest number of executions after China. But if we want to compare the relative population of the two countries, the number of criminals and executed people, Iran will be the first country!
Bravo Rouhani, Iran is really improving its situation among the Peace Loving countries. Congratulations idiot!

Sunday 07-09-2014: (Photo below) Hezbollah organisation and Amal movement thugs attacked Syrian refugees including women and children, with machetes and clubs in the streets of Al-Dahyeh (southern suburb of Beirut) as a result for beheading a second Lebanese soldier by ISIS.
And as usual Lebanese authorities and the world media continue to turn a blind eye to the persecution of refugees already driven from their homeland into destitution by an ongoing genocide.
Personally, I believe that ISIS or ISIL known as Da’esh is nothing but a normal and an expected reaction towards what Iran and its allies are doing against Muslims in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and almost all the Arab countries.
I DO NOT justify the killings committed by the group called ”ISIS”, but I’m fully aware that this group wouldn’t have existed without the interference of the sectarian militias of the malevolent ”Wali al-Faqih” in our Arab countries as an implementation of the dirty 50 years plan announced by the NUMBER ONE CRIMINAL Ayatollah Khomeini in 1980.
Anyway, allow me to say something to my brothers and sisters in this broken and stolen country ”Lebanon”:
”Dear Lebanese, seeing recently the beheading of our honored Lebanese soldiers is something -we the Lebanese- haven’t witnessed before and we condemn this cowardly act by the strongest words of condemnation. But believe me this is normally occurring as a result and due to the ongoing support by half of the Lebanese population to the armed mercenaries of Hezbollah terrorist organisation which keeps on slaughtering innocents in Syria. Yes a huge number of stupid and sometimes naive Lebanese people have contributed in creating ISIL or ISIS beasts, and now you are paying the price by losing your beloved ones in a war you have nothing to do with.”
Thank you Habibi Hasan Nasrallah for protecting the holy shrines in Syria, can you please now protect our holy army in Lebanon as you call yourself the protector of Lebanon?! Your intelligence kills me! 🙂
